I am a staff research scientist at DeepMind. Before joining DeepMind, I was a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley advised by Tom Griffiths and affiliated with the Computational Cognitive Science Lab and BAIR. I received a PhD and an MSc in Computer Science from the University of Toronto. I was advised by Suzanne Stevenson and Afsaneh Fazly, and was a member of the Computational Linguistics group.
You can reach me at my "lastname at deepmind dot com". This is how I pronounce my name.
Broadly, my research interests are in the intersection of computational linguistics, cognitive science, and machine learning. My recent work has focused on multimodal learning and evlaution and analysis of neural representations. During my PhD, I studied how children learn, represent, and search for semantic information through computational (cognitive) modeling. Here are my PhD thesis and its précis.
